Cobra Learning - Extra Credit / Bonus

Grades: Extra Credit / Bonus

Setting up extra credit (bonus) in your Cobra Learning course gradebook can be a 3-step process:

Step One: Grade Item

You can choose to either make a grade item bonus (meaning the entire grade item is extra credit) or you can simply allow a regular grade item to exceed the maximum points, thereby awarding extra credit points to an assignment.

  1. Go to Grades
  2. Create or Edit a Grade Item
  3. On the Properties tab, under Grading, check the box for Bonus (if the entire assignment is extra credit) OR check the box for Can Exceed (if only part of the assignment is extra credit).
  4. Click Save and Close.

Step Two: Grade Category

Once you have set a grade item to be extra credit, this will allow the items in the category to total up to 100% of the category possible points.  If you want the category to exceed 100% of the possible points, then do the following:

  1. Go to Grades
  2. Click the category title to enter edit mode.
  3. On the Properties tab, under Grading, check the box that says "Can Exceed."
  4. Click Save and Close.

Step Three: Final Calculated Grade

Again, once you have set the grade item and the category to "can exceed", this will allow the grade to be exceeded in those two items, but only up to the maximum possible course grade total.  If you want the final calculated grade to exceed 100% of the possible grade, then do the following:

  1. Go to Grades
  2. Click on the title for Final Calculated Grade to enter edit mode.
  3. On the properties tab, under Grading, check the box that says "Can Exceed."
  4. Click Save and Close.
